In early October, Matt Talbert, band director at Hanes Middle School, led two sixth grade beginning band classes in a series of musical selections. Keep in mind that these students have never had band before. They have only been playing for a little over one month! Learning fingering positions, learning to read music, learning to play with a group and keep up the pace — it’s overwhelming! Check back with us around December for the “Winter Concert” and you’ll be amazed at their growth as musicians!
